Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready

Posted on Updated on

This week’s official photo challenge topic is ready. A few summers ago, my family and I went on a cruise to Alaska. The best highlight was our dog sled adventure. We rode in a helicopter and viewed amazing sights of Alaskan mountains and glaciers.  We were all ready for an exciting adventure!

This is a photo from above that shows the many dogs and dog igloos.

The dogs appear somewhat calm in the photo, but they were sooo excited to get ready to pull the sled.

The dogs looked so cute in their little booties.

When everything was ready then the dogs were finally happy and could run. You could either sit in the sled or stand. I tried both. The whole experience on the sled lasted about thirty minutes, but it was awesome! It was so thrilling, I’m ready to do it again!

    These dogs really are amazing. Though I’ve never been to Alaska, I have read about the work these animals do and they truly deserve to be acknowledged and celebrated. Wonderful post.
